HCG Therapy in Austin TX
HCG is a hormone that is produced by the placenta and maximizes the functional capacity of the body’s control centers in the hypothalamus. That one center in the hypothalamus, “the fat bank”, controls the movement and distribution of fat throughout the body. HCG mobilizes abnormal fat and releases it as a source of energy and nutrients. Thus, small amounts of HCG have been shown to mobilize abnormal fat and make it available to the body as a source of energy and nutrients.
The HCG protocol calls for a 500 calorie per day diet. If someone were to start a 500 calorie per day diet without HCG he or she would experience hunger, cravings, feelings of misery and a loss of structural fat and muscle mass. However, during a 500 calorie per day diet on HCG, a patient typically loses up to one pound of abnormal fat per day. Each pound contains approximately 3500 calories. If people lose one pound of abnormal fat in one day, that makes 3500 calories available to them. This gives patients access to adequate amounts of energy because the rest of the calories are generated internally through the breakdown of fat deposits (lipolysis). Therefore, the patient is not hungry and loses weight.
HCG is only FDA approved for anovulatory (suppressed ovulation) infertility in women, and both cryptorchidism (undescended testicles) and hypogonadotropic (inadequate secretion of gonadotropins) hypogonadism in men. The FDA has not approved prescription HCG for any other uses, including weight loss
